very nice and helpful staff


It is as good as a hostel can by in Knysna. It's a sleepy town where people in the hostel are just passing through. You can have fun at night with the staff and the other guests. The staff try their best to create a good atmosphere and they do pretty well. The Wifi is good, it's clean and the people are friendly. It's a solid hostel and if you're travelling through Knysna or just looking to relax for a few days, it's a good choice.


Was very happy with the size, location and cleanliness of our room. Quiet and spacious


We were disappointed to find our accommodation would actually be just around the corner in a separate house, meaning we wouldn't have instant access to the (tiny) pool/ bar/ staff, plus there is no wifi at the house. In spite of this we really enjoyed our time here due to fab staff- Bev who was so helpful & informative& lovely Orrin (sp?!) who took us on several excellent tours to explore Knysna. A v.friendly, lively place 2mins from shops& 20mins from the waterfront for restaurants/ boat trips.
